Best known as the younger (by one year) brother of talented but ill-fated 
Saturday Night Livecomedian Chris Farley, Kevin Farley followed in the footsteps of his older sibling and established himself as a comedic screen presence in his own right. He grew up in Madison, WI, as the third of five children and the son of an asphalt company owner, and -- like Chris -- soon fell into a niche as the class clown. Both young men grew up as members of the Saturday Night Live generation and idolized performers such as John Belushi and Bill Murray beyond belief; Kevin attended Marquette University as a business major (graduating in 1986) and went to work for his dad. He grew to hate the business life and eventually moved to Chicago and enrolled in comedy classes, then relocated to Los Angeles and began signing for bit parts in Chris' features, such as Tommy Boy and Black Sheep, as well as guest spots in series programs such as That '70s Show and 3rd Rock from the Sun
Following Chris' death from an overdose in December 1997, Kevin landed a starring role on the briefly run MTV sitcom 2Gether, then moved into features, with an unsurprising emphasis almost exclusively on comedy, much of it in the destructive and anarchic vein of his late brother. Projects in which Kevin appeared included the Adam Sandler animated comedy Eight Crazy Nights (2002), the Cedric the Entertainer laugh-fest Johnson Family Vacation, and -- in a starring capacity -- a turn as a Michael Moore-like anti-patriotic director who gets the Ebenezer Scrooge treatment in theDavid Zucker gag-fest An American Carol (2008).

    For over 15 years, Brett has enjoyed creating a vast array of characters for original comedy shows in which he starred, co-wrote, directed, and produced. The shows have featured Brett on The Tonight Show, Seinfeld, E! TV, Comic Relief, HBO, and as recurring characters on MTV... just to name a few. Things kicked up another notch for Brett when he went on to co-star with heavyweight champ James Toney in his award winning short film ‘Fight Night’ ; which he also wrote and co-produced. The film was chosen for two of the world's largest festivals - Sony's Tropfest & The Just For Laughs Comedy Festival - which that year Brett was also asked to be a host. The following year Brett was given the honor of being selected as one of 22 comics from around the world as one of The New Faces Of Comedy at The Just For Laughs Festival. In the last few years Brett has been chomping at the boob tube show by show. The NFL Quarterback Challenge... The Farrah Fawcett Story... And after appearing for his 5th appearance in Las Vegas doing stand up, the writers of NBC’s Las Vegas got the idea to write Brett into 2 episodes. Including one that was rated one of Las Vegas’ highest ever. 2010 flew in and Brett found himself touring the country doing stand-up, appearing in 3 new commercials, 5 new films and 5 new pilots - From Game Show Network to the creators of Laugh-In to Brett's new short reaching over 20,000 hits on Youtube. Most recently, Brett became one of the new chat show hosts on Actors Entertainment & Actors Reporter. With over 3 million viewers in the last year, Brett talks it up weekly with everyone from Kevin Nealon to the Red Carpet at the LA Music Awards. Stay tuned. Who knows what’s next?
